About Me

My name is Nathan Hentze and I’m a birder, professional biologist, and father. I live and grew up in coastal British Columbia, but have called a few other regions of BC home over the years, allowing me to explore many corners of this great province. Birds have also taken me to a few other places around the world (not literally, I usually traveled by car or plane), most notably an extended trip with my lovely wife to South America.  I also journeyed to Asia, where I had the great pleasure of working with one of the rarest and most charismatic birds in the world – the Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

I’ve been birding since I was at least 11. Although my focus is always birds, I try to stop and smell the mammals, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, dragonflies, and other critters along the way. I like long strolls around sewage lagoons (just ask my wife…both our first date and my proposal happened at sewage facilities) and spending hours contemplating strange gulls at waste disposal sites. If we pass each other in the field, please stop and say hello. Until then, good birding.
